Easter is the perfect excuse to spend a little more bonding time with the grandkids. However, you need to put together a list of fun things to celebrate Easter with your grandkids to make sure they too, get to enjoy the festive season in the company of their most favorite person.
Easter Bunny Plates
If you have young grandkids, participate in an easy yet fun project that is highly interactive and very “Eastery”. Easter bunny plates are super adorable and require simple items that you may already have in your festive décor collection. You can make use of paper plates, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, and some poms-poms and let the little ones unleash their creative juices.
Peek-a-Boo Clothespin Eggs
Do your grandkids love peek-a-boo? Most kids love it and they will be more than thrilled with peek-a-boo clothespin eggs. The craft takes slightly less than 5 mere minutes and you can use your existing clothespin and several colors of felt cloth. Cut out the felt into the shape of an egg that is cracked into two and attach one piece to each end of the clothespin. When you pinch the clothespin open, a cute little chick will appear.
Eggs are symbolic of every Easter. If you have grandkids who are old enough, they will enjoy these emoji eggs. The idea is to paint hardboiled eggs into the different emoji expressions using sharpie or paint markers. When it is time to feast, ask your grandkids to select the emoji that they love the most and they can eat the hardboiled eggs so nothing goes to waste.
No-Sew Sock Bunny
This project can be a take-home gift for your grandkids. No-sew sock bunnies are easy to make and only require a sock, marker, rice, twine, and scissors. Put the rice inside the sock and tie it up in the middle to create the tummy of the bunny. Continue to add rice above the twine to create the bunny’s head and tie another knot to create the bunny’s ears. These no-sew sock bunnies are also great as a decoration.
Homemade Flubber or Slime
Flubber or slime is currently the latest trend in the younger generation. It is fun to play and easy to make. You can use Elmer’s glue, water, food coloring, and borax and watch the magic happen. You can also choose to add some glitter or sequins inside to make the entire mixture extra fun. Kids love it and it also supports sensory play for toddlers. The process of making flubber or slime is highly interactive so get your grandkids in on the action.
Bunny Butt Cookies
When grandkids are concerned, there must be an element of fun in everything that you intend to do with them. Baking cookies is a lot of fun but baking bunny butt cookies will make them laugh in joy. Bunny butt cookies are just sugary cookies but in the shape of bunny butts. You can decorate them in whichever way you prefer and in the favorite colors that your grandkids love.
